Drake is celebrating a new round of achievements as Honestly, Nevermind debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, becoming his 11th leader on the chart. Additionally, he earns his 11th No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Jimmy Cooks” featuring 21 Savage.
Taking to Instagram Stories, Drake reacted to his latest record-breaking accomplishment.
